“His mental edge got so much stronger,” Woodard said. “He just improved so much. It was really great to watch him progress like that.

“But really, it was all mental. He always had the game. He was always dunking on people. He just took it to a new level when it came to rebounding, blocking shots, controlling the paint. He's one of the biggest reasons why we won.”

Morris, who signed with Wichita State in November, had to deal with some pressure, too. There were high expectations for him individually and the Bulldogs as a team. And he heard the outsiders talking him down after he transferred from Santa Fe before his senior year.

“People were saying this and that,” Morris said. “But that didn't bother me at all. I knew I had to come out and work for the team. I just did what I had to do, and I'm glad we came out on top.”
